oh, I like a bit of FM … not had a look at what is available for organelle yet.
but ox7 (pdx7) sounds like a great idea.
I think the real challenge is the UI, 6ops with envelopes is a lot of parameters, to change with 4 pots.
perhaps looking at the volca FM might given some inspiration… (note: I don’t have one, so pure speculation )
when thinking about this, I also thought, … being able to import dx7 files could be a huge bonus, so you can bring in presets, then just tweak them. (much more feasible on a small screen), as can be done on the volcaFM
so I did a bit of searching, and BAM … found Hexter
now I doubt this can be ported ‘as is’ to Organelle with much success (perhaps it can, but that’s not my thoughts ;))
no, my idea is… rip its heart out, and use this to create a new synth… without the UI/DSSI/GTK dependencies, just the raw dsp and dx7 sysex code, and then put this either into a standalone synth, or into a PD external … which will just provide the ‘glue’ ui code.
of course, I recognise this is probably more work, but also would probably be quite cpu efficient, and also provide dx7 patch loading.
(I also admit my guilty preference for doing more code in C/C++ due to my limited PD patching skills )
note: ive not tried hexter, so I don’t know how good it sound, others have said it sounds good though.
(its apparently also used in ‘cute-vst’)
anyway, this may not be interesting to you , but I thought Id ‘raise it up the flag pole’ …
p.s if its interesting, it might be something I can lend a hand on… though not for a few weeks.
